Mitigering och klimatanpassning i svenska kommuner: en förstudie av goda exempel


This is a pilot study for a long-term research project aiming to identify key measures in making local policy and planning more efficient in reducing emissions and adapting to future climate changes. The objective of the pilot study is to identify 8–12 Swedish municipalities working successfully with both mitigation and climate adaptation, and which therefore can be regarded as ‘proactive’ in this area. Further, the study aims to facilitate an informed choice of cases in the research project. The study has been carried out with an explorative approach. Initially, already existing material consisting of investigations, rankings and surveys were reviewed. Next, telephone interviews with informants at public authorities were conducted. The final step included telephone interviews with civil servants at nine Swedish municipalities. The results of this pilot study indicate that even though many municipalities work with climate related issues, very few are in the lead in both mitigation and adaptation to climate change.
